The Samsung Galaxy Note 4
announcement is more than two months away, but there's a bunch of info floating around about the phablet, which we collected in our dedicated Note rumor round-up
. Today, the AnTuTu benchmarking database has been populated with not one, but two alleged Note 4 models, codenamed SM-N910S, and SM-N910C.
The "S" apparently stands for the version of the handset with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805
processor, while the "C" model indicates a powerful Exynos 5433 will be in store for the Note 4, as you can see in the benchmark screenshots below. Now, that new Exynos processor is described as an octa-core endeavor with Cortex-A57
combination of processor cores, clocked at 1.3
GHz maximums. These are both ARM's first 64-bit processor cores
, combining frugal power consumption with screeching fast performance. The GPU is listed as ARM Mali T760
, which means that the Note 4 should perform equally well in the graphics department regardless of whether it comes with Snapdragon 805 or the Exynos 5433. The RAM memory is pegged at 3 GB, with 32 GB of internal storage coming standard on both Note 4 variations.
Screen resolution is reiterated to be Quad HD
, or 1440x2560 pixels, and now that we already have the Galaxy S5 LTE-A
with a Quad HD Super AMOLED display made official, it's not hard to believe that the larger display of the Note 4 will also be QHD. The actual screen size is not listed here, but is rumored to remain the same 5.7" diagonal
as in the current Note 3
edition, and we'd say it's a good thing, especially if Samsung has managed to shrink the bezel further, stuffing the stellar specs in a more compact chassis.
The rear camera is listed with a 16 MP sensor, just as on the Galaxy S5
, though it's specualted to be a new Sony IMX240 sensor with optical image stabilization, rather than Samsung's 16 MP ISOCELL
bit. A relatively surprising 3.68-megapixel front camera is shown, whose number of pixels coincide with the 3.686 million pixels found on the display itself, so Samsung may be on to something here, but we'll have to wait and see if this camera/screen resolution reciprocity will result in a new feature. As for the actual announcement, it is widely expected to follow Samsung's usual Note unveiling schedule at the fall IFA Expo, which this year starts on September 5th.
